Chamber Events

Monthly Meeting

The Chamber holds monthly meetings (usually the 2nd Thursday of each month) at Member businesses.  The venue lends itself for networking, education about relevant business concerns, and updates on area happenings.  There is usually a guest speaker and a full program.  Guests and potential new members always welcomed.  To accommodate our members, we rotate our monthly meetings so that everyone has an opportunity to attend.

They are:

Eggs & Issues – a morning breakfast meeting that begins at 8am.

Lunch & Learn – a luncheon meeting that begins at 12 noon.

After Work Network – a cocktail party that begins at 5:30pm.

Annual Events

East End Employment Expo – the Chamber collaborates with the Riverhead Industrial Development Agency to hold and Job Fair every May at the Sea Star Ballroom.  Any business that is hiring is welcome to participate for a nominal fee that will give them Chamber membership as a bonus.  The event is free to Chamber members, businesses whose main office is located in Riverhead and certified businesses in the Suffolk County Empire Zone. Over 200-300 job seekers attend.

Riverhead Country Fair – this event takes place on the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend and is run by Riverhead Townscape.  The Chamber operates the Business Expo portion of the Fair wherein businesses take to the streets by purchasing a booth (larger than the typical vendor’s) along Main Street with exposure to over 10,000 fair attendees.
